Policies & Procedures A recent study of 997 schools across the United States (Greaves, Hayes, Wilson, et al., 2010) identified nine factors that, if present, appear to contribute to higher levels of achievement in schools that have adopted one-to-one programs. The top three factors were

1. Ensuring uniform integration of technology in every class. 2. Providing time for teacher learning and collaboration (at least monthly).
3. Using technology daily for student online collaboration and cooperative learning.

Rather than being a cure-all or silver bullet, one-to-one laptop programs may simply amplify what's already occurring—for better or worse—in classrooms, schools, and districts. Jim Collins (2001) arrived at a similar conclusion about technology in the business world. "Technology alone," he observed in Good to Great, "never holds the key to success." However, "when used right, technology is an essential driver in accelerating forward momentum" (p. 159). The same thing could be said of one-to-one computing initiatives in schools and districts. One to One Laptop Programs Are No Silver Bullet
